Verdict

Back Off Mate has never won over hurdles and looks high enough in the weights while Mighty Whitey has a long absence to overcome and his last two runs over timber were in sellers. SHERSHEWILL ran three times here early last summer, winning a maiden and twice finishing runner-up, so she's handed the vote despite a lay-off. Gold Not Silver was in fine form before a poor latest run when he pulled too hard while Imperial Joey was put up 11lb after a very easy victory here in September and has been well beaten in both subsequent starts. Shanroe Society gained his only victory in 22 starts over timber last January and is still 8lb higher.
